I don't remember how I came across Drollgirl in the first place, but I remember being instantly hooked. The author of this (sometimes shockingly) funny blog maintains her anonymity, but she's a blogger I would take the opportunity to sit down and have coffee (or an alcoholic beverage) with because I know we would be fast friends. It's difficult to describe Drollgirl as a blog, but it always manages to entertain me whether it be through interesting art picks, uncomfortable photographs, charming bits of disclosure by the writer, or just ridiculously funny commentary...I always leave this blog satifsfied (so to speak). Here's how Drollgirl tackled my three questions:
Picky, picky, picky!
If you could have one day to do anything you wanted to
do...no consequences, unlimited money, what would you do?
The pilot would take me to the Van Gogh Museum, and he would make sure I did not get lost because I am a basketcase traveler and I have never been to Amsterdam. Once there, I would have the entire museum to myself so that I could look at all the gorgeous paintings without the interference of others. Maybe they would let me keep a painting if I gave the museum a large enough donation. Hmmm. That would be worth a try.
Then I would take in as many
sites as I could see in Amsterdam, including checking out places like
Then I would hurry home to Los Angeles to (hopefully) be worshipped and adored by boyfriend and kitties, and to get down with some good grub.
What do you think makes a blog successful or how would you describe a successful blog?
I like blogs that reflect the personality, taste, personal experiences, and wit of the writer. I want to see more than pretty pictures on a blog [my emphasis]. I appreciate it when bloggers talk about their personal lives--the good and the bad things happening in their lives -- the stuff that the rest of us can relate to. I just find that is is so helpful to read about the styruggles of others and to know that we all have issues to contend with. I am not always good at writing about such things, but I am trying to improve in the his area. Oh! One more thing. A blog with a little bit of wit always makes me come back for more.
Thanks Drollgirl for participating! Now go check out her blog!
